The mixed martial arts world is reacting to the impending retirement of legendary UFC fighter Georges St-PIerre, who reports suggest will announce that he is stepping away from the sport on Thursday.

GSP beat the cream of three full generations in the then-deepest division in the sport, redefined the business side of MMA, and always got his financial worth from one of the stingiest companies in sports. A legend who deserves more credit than he could ever receive. https://t.co/boHU6EV7Lk

If GSP is retiring due to not being able to fight Khabib, it shows just how important his legacy is to him.
There is not another fight that would enhance his legacy beyond where it is now.
A win over Khabib would cement him as the best ever, but he quite possibly already is.

GSP to retire Thursday, per this report. Geroges tops any list of the best mixed martial artists, and his legacy is far more important than that. Tremendous athlete, sportsman and businessman. MMA isn't the same without GSP's influence. https://t.co/L6thS0ZCMf
